Cinema Static, TV News, Movie News and OpinionHey gang, the things that caught my eye recently was a piece about Joss Whedon addressing the 3d post-conversion of The Avengers, that there will more than likely not be a Buffy remake and Lady Gaga showing more appreciation to her fans.

Joss Whedon on The Avengers Post-Conversion to 3D

While we know that Disney is Jonesing to release (and will) Joss Whedon’s movie, The Avengers, in 2D and 3D, which isn’t a surprise, being as how the entire industry is continually trying to shove 3D down the consumers throat. Now I just wish more consumers would speak with their wallets about the issue!

But the website, JoBlo, had caught up with Joss Whedon to chat with him about the 3D release and we learned this from the site:

Whedon knew about the conversion to 3D. CONVERSION? Yep, The Avengers is being post-converted to 3D.

This conversion was on his mind during the entire time while filming The Avengers but he also tried to sooth fan’s nerves by saying that the movie won’t go overboard with the 3D process, meaning that we won’t find ourselves travelling through a tunnel for 20 minutes in any scene just because it’s in 3D.

The Avengers opens in movie theaters on May 4th, 2012.

There is a God in the Whedonverse!

Word on the the street is that the Buffy the Vampire Slayer remake movie is been staked and turned to dust. At least temporarily.

LA Times movie blog, Hero Complex, is reporting that their sources say that Whit Anderson‘s screenplay didn’t meet expectations (what ever those were) and that she had also been fired.

Right now the folks behind this project are now looking for a new screenplay writer, but that the project has lost steam for the time-being.

Lady Gaga Leaking New Song

Lady Gaga told her fans via her Twitter account that she is showing her appreciation to her fans by leaking an unreleased song off ‘Born This Way’ on December 25th.

She said it was recorded live in one take on her tour bus!

Which is yet another cool deed done by her. Either earlier this year, or late last year, she self-released a song to the internet, only charging a dollar.

I think it’s cool that she does these little things like this. It helps keep fans happy and keeps her momentum going in the sales department, as she garners fan appreciation and loyalty.
